I had originally planned to make Valentine’s Day decorations with Chipmunk today to decorate for dinner tonight. That is until I was eating my breakfast/lunch and thought ” Hey we could green screen some shots of her in the office and replace the green with some awesome V Day backgrounds!”. Intro to Paint.net, a free program available all over the internet that enables you to do simple photo editing without the bulk and learning curve of Photoshop. Now, I’m a Photoshop and Gimp kinda gal but I wanted something a little simpler for Chipmunk. I don’t want tears on Valentine’s Day. Once again to Google I went searching for a tutorial fit for a six and a half year olld’s technology needs. Tadaaa!!! Oakdome.com An excellent resource for technology lessson plans/age and grade appropriate tutorials for some of today’s most popular office related software. On a side note Chipmunk is making Valentine’s Day themed decorations from Strawberry Shortcake color pages. These works of art will be displayed in the kitchen behind the table. I’m excited to see what our projects our going to look like. Paint.net Green Screen Tutorial Link Other Paint.net Activities Listed on Oakdome.com
